German Baked Apples Bratapfel takes me right back to childhood! I don’t think at the time anyone thought of them as being particularly “German.” They were, like so many recipes that were ubiquitous to the Midwest, just a part of small-town, down-home cooking. Baked apples appeared a lot-at our table for dessert.
I don’t know if I was happy or horrified by how well the Brussels sprouts I had in the fridge kept! I’ve been checking on them, watching as there were certainly things more desperate to be used at my house. They’ve been in my fridge veggie drawer since the first week we high-risk people were told to stay in so that’s five weeks now, I think! Well, it was high time to get after them and so came about this Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Apple & Feta.
There are some flavors that just take me back to childhood. To home. And one of those is just about anything “spice.” As in spice bars or spice cakes. One taste and I’m pretty much transported. And one of my favorites was always Classic Applesauce Spice Bars.
Ya gotta know I’m really a fan of coleslaw or as I see it called more often these days, cabbage slaw. Cabbage is relatively inexpensive, easily found during any season, and so healthy and I love to work it into a slaw. And I love just about any slaw, and I have a bunch on my site, I’m always keeping my eye open for fun and fresh variations. That’s where this Tangy Apple Cabbage Slaw comes into play.
If you’re looking for an easy, no fuss way to get breakfast on the table, look no further than Make-Ahead Apple Baked Oatmeal. There is something to be said of springing (ok, stumbling, #not a morning person) into the kitchen on a cold, frosty winter morning, getting the oven going and baking a panful of warm, apple-y cinnamony make ahead deliciousness.
